TGMS Weekly Updates

August 4, 2020

A message from Dr. Jackson

Recently we began sending out weekly videos for you and your child to get to know Toll Gate Middle School. This week's feature video will be "Welcome to Toll Gate". Look for future videos here from your child's teachers and a google meet invitation to "Meet Your Teacher" prior to the first day of school.

We hope you will enjoy this video as we prepare for the start of the school year.

PTO and School Supplies

The PTO knows how much our parents give to us and now they want to give back to parents during this difficult time to help reduce the financial burden of purchasing vast quantities of supplies for their students to use. The items we have requested that parents purchase are items that can be personalized or help to reflect your child's personality and during this school year, those types of reflections we know are going to be even more important. If you find that you as a family need additional help with those items, please email Principal Jackson and she will keep your information private and only provide the PTO with the items that are needed. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact the PTO at Stay well and we all hope to be back in school full time soon.
